Last night I wrote about Russel Tarr’s QR Code Treasure Hunt Generator. That is one fun way to use QR codes in your classroom. Regina Schantz shared this picture (embedded in the Tweet below) of her students on a QR code treasure hunt.
A treasure hunt is just one of many uses of QR codes in classrooms. If your students use iPads or other mobile devices in your classroom QR codes make it easy for you to get every student to a webpage. A QR code can be used to distribute Google Documents, to distribute notes, contact information, and even a calendar event. In the video embedded below I provide a demonstration of how to use QR Droid Zapper to create custom QR codes.
